Researchers will present clinical information regarding Or Akiva, Israel-based Expanding Orthopedics' FLXfit at the International Society for the Advancement of Spine Surgery Annual Meeting, held from April 12 to 14 in Boca Raton, Fla., according to Yahoo! Finance.

Here are five things to know:

 

1. Marc Weinstein, MD, of Tampa-based Florida Orthopaedic Institute Center for Spinal Disorders, will deliver the presentation, "Use of a Novel 3-D Titanium Alloy Lordotic Expandable Cage Improves Segmental Lordosis after TLIF Greater than with a Static Lordotic Cage."

 

2. The FLXfit is an articulating and lordotic expandable cage for transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion.

 

3. Dr. Weinstein noted the cage offers "in-situ lordosis correction allowing to dial in the lordosis angle and to fit it to the patient's anatomy."

 

4. The study revealed enhanced segmental lordosis with the FLXfit during TLIF compared to a static cage.

 

5. Raphael Roybal, MD, of Savannah, Ga.-based Chatham Orthopaedics' Spine Institute, will also present a poster, "Improvement in Sagittal Alignment and ODI Scores in Patients Treated with MIS TLIF Using a Lordotic Expandable Cage versus a Fixed Lordotic Cage."
